As part of the Geary Rapid Project, construction continues on surface improvements, including upgraded traffic signals and streetlights, sidewalk extensions at bus stops and intersection corners, improved median refuges and roadway repaving, which are being managed by San Francisco Public Works.  Work to replace aging water pipes east of Van Ness Avenue is currently on pause in observance of the holiday construction moratorium, in support of local businesses.

Geary Rapid Project construction is currently scheduled to continue during the shelter in place order, with crews observing social distancing requirements and a safe working environment. The following two-week construction forecast is subject to change due to weather delays or unexpected field conditions. No work is planned for the weeks of December 21 and 28 as crews are taking time off for the holidays.
